Secure Shell (SSH) is a network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network. SSH provides a secure channel over an unsecured network in a client-server architecture, connecting an SSH client application with an SSH server. Our SSH integration ensures your SSH is running at all times and properly securing your valuable information.
What You Can Monitor
Opsview contains critical service checks to make sure your SSH connection is up and running. It also ensures port 22 is responding to requests and also checks that the process of SSH is running on your system. These types of checks allow for you to easily monitor your SSH connections and tie them into a larger dashboard view of your network infrastructure.
